Many of you must be familiar with the surgical facelift that several celebrities have undertaken to look young for longer and to hide their actual age. This surgical procedure involves the tightening of skin and removal of lines and wrinkles from the face through skin tightening and cutting. In a facelift surgery, incisions are made and the skin is separated from the underlying skin tissues and muscles. The plastic surgeon then rearranges the facial tissues and recreates a smooth and form skin giving an overall youthful appearance.Though the results of a surgical facelift are permanent but the procedure is very painful and involves long recovery period with associated risk and complications.
On the other hand, non-surgical face lift treatments tighten and firm the skin while smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles without involving any use of the invasive surgical procedure. This treatment firms and lifts your face by toning the underlying muscles, adding volume, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and preventing loose skin in future. There is a range of non-surgical facelift treatments available that are designed to achieve skin firming, toning, tightening and lifting without surgery. These treatments are minimally invasive with a short recovery period, instant results and few temporary side effects. However, the results of the non-surgical face lift treatments are temporary lasting for few months or up to a year.
Options for non-surgical face lift
The choice of the option for non surgical face lift treatment depends entirely on the outcomes that you desire because every treatment works at a different level and has different advantages.
- Liquid facelift treatment: if you have developed lines and wrinkles in your upper face as well as around your mouth and has a sagging jaw line then liquid facelift treatment might be a good fit for you. The liquid facelift is performed by combining Botox and dermal fillers treatment. The injections of these are injected at particular areas on the face. The botox paralyses the muscles by inhibiting the nerve impulses which in turn smooth out the lines and wrinkles on a skin surface. The dermal fillers plump and fill the areas that have lost volume. The fillers create a lifted and tightening effect that lasts for about 6-12 months.
- Chemical skin peel treatment: the early signs of ageing include uneven skin tone with pigmentation and fine lines. If you are experiencing these signs then you can consider having a chemical skin peel treatment. This treatment works by removing the upper layers of skin. This results in exposing a better toned and younger looking complexion. The chemical peel treatment just takes 10 minutes in the practitioner’s office. A chemical agent is applied to the skin which causes it to peel off after few days of the application. The skin which reveals underneath the peeling is fresh, new and rejuvenated. The treatment increases the new cells turnover while stimulating collagen production hence producing a tightening and firming effect.
- PDO thread Facelift treatment: This novel treatment gives nearly similar results to that of surgical facelift treatment. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves insertion of super fine PDO filaments through tiny incisions into the skin muscles which lifts and tightens the sagging skin. The effect of this non-surgical facelift treatment lasts for up to a year.
